“you really have to like plants”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Its a verdant beautifully planted island but for me its just a stroll through the trees. Perhaps more exciting if you are really into planting.

“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We went there on a big felucca (traditional Egyptian sailboat) which made it more fun. There are trees, shrubs and flowers from all over the world, even Australia. After days of traipsing through monuments and tombs this was the last thing I expected. Its also free (although getting there isn't).

“Amazing plant and bird-life”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This is always worth a visit if only for the shade! But the range of plant and bird-life is the real reason to come. Colours of both are exotic.

“It is the Botanical Gardens of Aswan”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Take about three hours to see it all. The area is flat and as such no problems for people with mobility problems, the only problem like in most areas and places of interest is getting from the boat on land and v.v.

The paths are broad and well maintained. There are wc's as well as places to get a drink and buy souvenirs.

You can only reach it by boat. As you land at one side of the island and am collected from the other end it is essential you remember your boat and scipper! It is a wonderful morning or afternoon, as one is shaded by the trees and palmes!
